This cover makes me smile so much.
It's not unlike a Shonen Knife song to be honest

Oh lordy dude... as many times as my father crammed Niel Diamond down my throat as a kid, somehow this, by a group I actually like, is infinitely worse.

I've never actually heard this cover before, but Andrew Eldritchs' voice is just so easy to identify.

Saw them in Birmingham in 92 & they opened with this.
I couldn't quite believe what I was hearing.
Wasn't half as much of a shock as them covering Confide In Me a few years later.
Eldritch even apologised before they played it.
lol
